On Monday August 23rd, members of the Switchbacks staff spent the afternoon volunteering at the Care and Share Distribution Center. Care and Share Food Bank of Southern Colorado is a non-profit dedicated to helping bridge the gap between food hunger and food abundance in the Southern Colorado area. Their mission is to provide food, partnering opportunities, and education to fight hunger and food insecurity in Southern Colorado communities.
The Switchbacks make an effort to volunteer their times a few times a year, across lots of different disciplinaries. At Care and Share, they spent the afternoon sorting through produce from grocery stores to redistribute at their centers across the area, and also packed over 200 meal bags for families in El Paso County. Philanthropy is a big pillar of the values of the Switchbacks, and as a local business that likes to support their community, volunteering for groups that directly impact their neighbors is vital to the Switchbacks mission.
